Dorinda recently appeared at BravoCon with costars Ramona Singer, Tinsley Mortimer, Luann de Lesseps and more. Earlier this month, Ramona, 63, revealed that Dorinda made Luann, 54, cry duding RHONY filming. Ramona dished to OK! exclusively about what went down. “We only have four weeks left to film, and we’ve gone to another level. I don’t know how it is with men, but with women your friendships are so important, especially later in life, because we’re in a new era where people are getting divorced, their spouses are dying, they’re starting new careers, they’re empty-nesters. You need your girlfriends,” Ramona said.

She continued, “On this season, you’ll see us all bond on this deeper level and it’s so incredible. Of course we still fight — we actually fight on a deeper level. You’re going to see some bada** fights, which actually one almost made me cry. One made Luann cry. Dorinda almost made me cry and she definitely made Luann cry, because that’s how deep we get.”
